Find Me On:
This is like a a song my high school joke band would have written.
Yeah that whiny pop punk was the worst, but no, I am familiar with most of these bands. My friends were all listening to it in the late 90s/early 00s. Most of it just does nothing for me at best, and is downright grating at worst.
I’m not sure what you’re trying to say here. Weezer was influenced by Nirvana and Pavement…so?
Yeah, I remember my emo-loving friends listening to that one. I’ll revisit it, and give it another chance!
I hated emo at the time, and I still hate it. (Except for Pinkerton, which is amazing and doesn’t deserve to be lumped in with the rest of these hacks. And Death Cab has maybe two good songs.) And now people are getting all nostalgic for it? What’s next, a list of essential songs from the golden age of nu metal? Apologies if this comes across as trollish. Emo just makes me kind of…emotional.
I love these guys so much, but I have to say, every live video of them I’ve seen has been a bit underwhelming. Especially this song. The recordings are so amazingly produced though, so maybe it’s just hard to live up to that awesomeness?
Great news! Can we all stop pretending to like King of Limbs now?
I think this song–in addition to its overall greatness–has the best intro of all time.
This is tough. The guy has no filter, so there’s so much filler permeating all of his albums. Every album is (as the cliche goes) his White Album. Who the fuck knows.
